The band was created in late 1989 by two like-minded individuals: The Magus (bass/vocals) and Baron Blood (8-string bass). Their aim was to create original, powerful and innovative Diabolical music, replacing the usual 6-string guitars with 8-string bass and joined forces with various musicians in drums, lead guitars, keyboards and innovations in order to complete their magical formula. Their first recordings earned them a cult status in the scene since their music was original, ritualistic and utterly sinister.
NECROMANTIA never hesitated to use “non-metal” instruments like saxophone, percussions etc. in addition to their standard metal orchestrations, and that option made them unique and established their own individual sound.
They have released three demo tapes, four full albums, one mini album, one split album, one split EP and various  7” eps and re-releases.
Having darkness as a compass they kept creating music for almost three decades. A source of inspiration for younger bands, breaking boundaries and expanding the Necro universe.
In 2019 Baron Blood departed from this world. The Magus decided to dissolve the band but not before creating a last opus as a tribute to his lost brother in darkness. The album will be entitled “To the depths we descend….” with a release date in Autumn 2021.

-The Magus: bass, vocals, keys

-Yiannis Votsis: drums
